English-taught Minors

Exchange students are able to choose from a variety of English-taught Minor Programs. Each Minor is a one semester long set program. Most Minors run every semester, and normally consist of 30 ECTS credits. Please note that it is NOT possible to pick and mix courses from different Minors. In order to be admitted to one of our Minors, we expect students to have a language level of B2 or higher in English (non-native speakers need to include proof of language proficiency in their application documents). Some Minors might also require specific academic or technical skills.
